Hello all. Just joined. I discovered John and Hank through their Crash Course videos, then Scishow, and now I've been watching a bunch of their just plain vlogs, and loving all of it.
As for what makes me a nerd, well, I've always loved learning things. My intellectual interests span pretty much every field of human endeavor, I have been immersed scifi and fantasy from a very young age, oh, and I was raised in the pre-Internet days by a librarian in a house without cable or videogames. So that probably helped a lot.
Welcome to the Ning, James :D Bet you're excited for the Mongol episode coming next, eh?
let me guess, you rebelled in adolescence by going out for sports, didn't you James? :D
As John said once in a Brotherhood 2.0 video, one of the greatest things about being a nerdfighter is that we never have to curb our enthusiasm. We have no shame about who we are and what we love. Basically, I am a nerdfighter because of everything I am, hahaha. From Star Wars, to Lady Gaga, to videos games, to Disney...I'm a nerd!
Welcome to the Ning, Natalie :D
Enjoy your stay!
that is a great sentiment and i admire you for declaring it Natalie. welcome to the ning
Hey everyone, new nerdfighter here :)
Hello Kelley, and welcome to the Ning! Enjoy your stay :D
welcome to the ning Kelley! what brings you here? how did you find out about it/the vlogbrothers?
Hello! My name is Casey, I want to open a sandwich shop/mini-golf place and call it "Sub-Par". I suppose what makes me a nerd is that I enjoy minutiae, palindromes, and wordplay (and yes I choose to continue using the Oxford comma). I also immensely enjoy books (I will read any book and am more than willing to discuss it), theatre (Hedda Gabler, Seagull, Spring Awakening, and other somewhat morbid shows), and cake design (just watch Amazing Wedding Cakes once).
You can't tell entirely from my picture, but what mainly brought me to Nerdfighters was this notecard I found in the copy of "An Abundance of Katherines" I bought from Barnes & Noble. The notecard was written by a girl named Sara who encouraged me to come here. I thought this was pretty great, and felt like she deserved some recognition. So, thanks Sara!
Wow, that was cool way to invite someone :D
Welcome to the Ning Casey, and I hope you enjoy your stay!
welcome Casey. not that cake decorating isn't awesome, but totally threw me for a fun loop coming after your other big traits.
